U.S. Ed releases draft rules related to ESSA

The U.S. Department of Education has released draft rules related to the new Every Student Succeeds Act. The South Dakota Department of Education is examining them and will make public comment back to U.S. Ed. Others are also encouraged to review the rules and offer public comment directly to U.S. Ed.

Statewide work groups are also digging into the Every Student Succeeds Act this summer to develop South Dakota’s State Plan. While not a part of the ESSA, educator effectiveness is being reviewed at this time as well. Find agendas, meeting notes and more on the groups’ webpages:
